I have a hp A800n desktop computer.
AMD Athalon XP 3200+
1g of ram.

I was wondering what was the biggest processor I could install on my motherboard. I want to be able to play "warhammer online". But my processor is too small and I need to buy a video card. I good budget video card recommendation would be nice too.

XP 3200 was the "biggest" socket A processor.

If you only have onboard graphics you could get a decent AGP graphics card, but you'd probably have to upgrade the power supply to run it. Your money would be better spent going towards a new platform.
